About the Course
This course is oriented toward drug discovery and development using computational methods. This training program will enhance the ability of Students/Researchers to generate a novel hypothesis for drug discovery. Areas to be covered in this course include theoretical and practical aspects of drug target identification, ligand library preparation, homology modeling, molecular docking, molecular dynamics (MD) simulation, and other associated computational and modeling techniques used in drug research and development. This course includes practical/ hands-on sessions through selected software modules.
Training Sessions :
Drug Target Identification and structure downloading (Protein data bank (PDB))
Drug/Ligand library preparation
Homology modeling of the drug target (If target structure not available)
Homology model validation via selected methods (SwissModel)
Protein and ligand preparation for molecular docking study using AutoDock tool
Molecular docking result analysis and dock pose visualization (Pymol/Chimera)
ADME/T analysis of top binding energy showing ligand toward the target
Molecular dynamics (MD) simulation study and analysis (GROMACS)
MD simulation trajectory analysis and plot generation (RMSD, RMSF, SASA, Radius of gyration (Rg), and H-bond analysis)
Training Mode: Online
